Hungary red sludge spill has reached Danube

A toxic red sludge spill from an alumina plant in western Hungary had reached the Danube by midday on Thursday, a spokesman for Hungarian disaster crews was cited by national news agency MTI as saying.

Tibor Dobson told MTI there were no reports of fish dying in the Raba and Mosoni-Danube rivers which were hit by the spill earlier, but all fish had died in the smaller Marcal river.
